Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: This special edition is a full bodied and distinctive strong beer developed within the abbey to celebrate and honour the 150th anniversary of the brewery. Produced with 100% natural ingredients,its pale golden robe and champagne sparkle is topped by a rich white head of foam. The distinctive bouquet evokes the rich fruity and complex notes of the Chimay yeast in harmony with a delicate spicy note and the fragrance of fresh noble hops. At 10% alcohol, the flavour is full bodied and complex with a slight but refreshing tang note and a crisp hop finish that will delight the palate.

It has strong carbonation, the cork almost shot a hole in the ceiling, but it still pours easily. I was greeted by a fluffy white head that dissipated quickly leaving a nice lacing on the glass. The beer has a clear yellow/straw appearance. Semi-sweet smell (peppermint?), however no specific fruit aromas noted, but there was an almost juicy fruit aroma. Very fizzy mouth-feel and has a tart taste at the end. Malt is the dominant flavor with fermented grapes. Nice dry finish.
